Lapis Software Associates, LLC announced the sale of its gemTrust™product line to Spectra Systems Corporation. gemTrust is a software product that provides lotteries with internal control systems, commonly referred to as “ICS” for balancing game accounting for lottery games prior to drawings.

“The sale of gemTrust will support our increased investments in solutions that help lotteries grow”, said Jean Lombard, President of Lapis. “We are focused on leveraging our experience working with lotteries and gaming system vendors to deliver more flexible and intelligent software applications that are easier to implement, support and enhance.”

Lapis recently announced the introduction of the gemIntelligence™ suite of applications for lottery sales force automation and retailer information. gemIntelligence offers lotteries and their retail enterprise a suite of office and mobile software applications that work seamlessly together. gemIntelligence combines a retail portal customized for direct access by retailers and tools for lottery employees to improve the delivery and consumption of the same information wherever and whenever lottery reps need it.
